Voters to Decide on Term Limits For Commissioners, Executive
Next November, Lehigh County voters will decide whether term limits should be imposed on the Executive and Commissioners. Under the Home Rule Charter, the Executive has a two-term limitation, but Commissioners are term-limited only at the ballot box. Under the referendum proposed by Commr's Dean Browning and Andy Roman, they will now all be limited to three, four-year, terms.
The proposal passed 6-3, with Percy Dougherty, Tom Creighton and Glenn Eckhart opposed.
